On September 22, 1950, Ralph Bunche received the Nobel Prize—the first African-American and the first person of color in the world to be so honored. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace for his successful mediation of a series of armistice agreements between the new nation of Israel and its Arab neighbors Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. It remains the only time that all the parties to the Middle East conflict signed armistice agreements with Israel. #TodayInBlackHistory
